"Viscosity version 1.4 is not working, use version 1.3.5"

Version 1.3.5 works great


Do not install version 1.4 yet, it is still in beta stage and is not working without some adjustments.

I was using Viscosity on my Mac for 2 years and it is a good product.

"it works when all else fails"

Works great with my OpenVPN server running as VM on Win7
Easy to install OpenVPN client config file & if needed, edit IP address of connection


not free, but works when I couldn't get the recommended free Mac OpenVPN client to do so


works; it's worth the price

"Works great and practically free."

It works with PKCS12 keys. Installs like a normal Mac app.


None so far.


If you need to connect via OpenVPN and that is set up to use PKCS12 keys, you have three options:
1. Get plain the OpenVPN for Mac software and run it from the command line;
2. Get Tunnelblick;
3. Get Viscosity.
The first option takes some work. I couldn't even find the Mac version on the OpenVPN site. The link takes you to a page that says you can download it, but it isn't there. Their suggestion is to use option 2.
The second option takes some work. PKCS12 doesn't work with the latest release.
The third option is easy. Download and install. Eventually you have to pay for it, but if $9 is too much for you, what are you doing with a Mac?

"Stable, quick, & cheap"

Stable app. Speed is as quick as if not quicker than Apple's built-in VPN option (which has proven necessary for me running an enterprise server where both Windoze users and Macs are logging in, given that Windoze [XP] still cannot do VPN L2TP (or PPTP!) out of the box reliably -- can't speak for Vista).

Price ($10 shareware, forthcoming) reasonable. GUI nice. Option for config. tweaks good.

Overall a good product.
